How to create accounts

Hey i need to create accounts for my class. There are around 60 people. These people will connect to the server using telnet. Also tell me how to make it possible for others to access the server and that they should have limited authorization.

You will probably want to create a new group for all your students. Then, create the 60 individual users and make sure they are members of that group.

You can then set the privledges for the entire group rather than having to do it for each individual student.

Here is a really good resource for adding and removing groups and users:
